    Dude wrote a lot of books under a lot of different names.
    Doesn't count in 2009 Death Pool - he died in 2008.

    Good of you to post this, Moddy. I've been reading Westlake since I was a teenager. The Dortmunder and Parker books are must-haves for anyone who reads crime fiction.
    Dude wrote 70 books, and wrote 7 days a week unless he was on vacation. Hard not to feel like a slacker knowing that.
  3. And The Hot Rock is one of the most underrated caper movies ever.
